He also did not specify whether there will be specified systems are simply shown to public or they will be brought into operation.

To move on it, it agrees to one of projects, there will be platforms on electrodraft lowered in a tunnel on lift mines. The project purpose - working off of the technologies necessary for creation of the transport systems in big cities.

Opening of a test tunnel is a step forward to implementation of plans of Musk for creation of the city underground transport system. In August Musk announced plans of laying of a tunnel about 5 km long between already operating metro station and Dodger stadium on which the platforms calculated on 16 passengers will be able to move with a speed about 200 km/h. However prior to construction these plans will have to undergo careful testing in terms of safety and impact on the environment.
